erm - thanks Caz but I'll pass on that cos yours will last longer than half an hour and won't have a bbq for afterwards. Nothing personal.

Does anyone swim regularly in the River Dee in North Wales?

I fancy doing wrexham to chester or vice versa depending on which way the current flows

Budjude you might find contacting Chester tri useful for that. I think Dave the ex spartan is a member if he's about or you know him.

probably should have looked there to beign with.

seems there is a 4k route which folks do on a regular ish basis. just fancy something different to the standard 2k in the same lake every week.

Wrexham out to Chester is the typical way the river flows. I know you can kayak from Farndon to Chester - thats probably about 14km. Just don't go over the weir in Chester. And plenty of rowers / pleasure boats around so you'd need a safety boat with you to stop you getting smacked on the head.

And I think some of Wrexham tri swim in the Dee as well... Me I tend to stick to Manley Mere on a Tuesday night

I missed you in the water last week - we must have been 100s of meters apart for the whole session Dave ! Might see you later.

Yeah I think theres a swim from Ecclestone on a Sunday night ? I prefer Manley too.

Can't make it tonight...

I missed the lake tonight, that w word got in the way so now wondering how I get through the winter with no open water even in those lakes that SC hates it's so much better than a pool.


Caz, having done all my non wetsuit swims in the sea last year and the lake this year I can see what you mean about lakes!

I'm probably heading off to Dover tomorrow for a bit of a swimble in some salt water.  Not sure when I will be getting wet yet but my support crew will be posting on FB.  Feel free to share that information on here if anybody is interested.

You are too modest Caz - loads of people here are interested. 

And don't forget your passport.

What soupy said, some of us will be glued to the boat tracker

How exciting, as soupy said, don't forget your passport or you'll have to swim back as well.

Facebook message says its not her. She declined the slot to a stronger swimmer because of the weather. Hold tight.

Thanks for the update soupy. Save me from watching the wrong blips moving across the screen.
